tadea helping North East businesses to cut costs
Billingham-based sustainability organisation tadea is helping businesses across the region to boost competitiveness in the face of rising fuel bills by improving their energy efficiency.
tadea, which has been at the forefront of the sustainability sector in the north of England for the past decade, is offering its business energy audit service to help organisations reduce the amount of fuel they use – in some cases by up to as much as 20 per cent*. Such reductions lead directly to lower running costs and also help to cut carbon emissions, so helping to set companies firmly on the path to both financial and environmental sustainability.
David Morgan is tadea’s Commercial Manager. He believes that for businesses, improving energy efficiency is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to reduce overheads and boost environmental performance.
He says: “Almost every organisation – be it a large multinational company, a local authority or an SME – can do something to improve their energy efficiency and therefore reduce their running costs as a result.
“Our audits are designed to help businesses run their operations in the most energy efficient ways possible. Many of the measures we suggest are easy to implement and people are often surprised at how even small changes in the way they use their gas and electricity can, over the course of a year, lead on to big savings. These savings can quickly cover the cost of getting an audit carried out – but then they continue to mount up year after year. Saving energy really does help businesses to save money – and with winter fast approaching, what better time than the present to get an energy audit carried out?”
Energy audits typically include a ‘walk round survey’ of a business’s premises – assessing areas such as the boiler plant, building fabric, lighting system and heating controls – and will also look at how the building occupiers operate their energy consuming equipment and hot water appliances, as well as at equipment operating times.
Following an audit, tadea will provide a recommendations report which will outline the steps that can be taken to reduce energy use. Comprehensive support and tadea after care are also available to help to ensure that the advice given is effectively implemented so as to maximise the energy savings made.
